Trusting the soundmeter with different hacks


Recommended Posts


i know, for a super professional work, nobody should trust the gh2's soundmeter without headphones.

Still: I have had good experience with it.

First i tried the unified hack, then several from driftwood. The soundmeter was always reliable, in the middle, never in the red and no distortions. I always put the Mic level on 1 and set my rode video mic pro to 0.

Now i switched to Flow Motion which i visually like the best so far. With the same camera and mic settings i had almost no sound in my recordings. Just when i really pushed the mic level i got decent sound (level 3). The problem is, now the soundmeter gets into the red zone quite often with the sound being ok. Getting the soundmeter into the red is something i always tried to avoid in the past, as a distortion is really hard to fix. But now red is not a no-go anymore.

So i sort of lost my trust into the soundmeter with flow motion. Anybody else has similar experiences?

The weird thing is, that Flow Motion also uses Per Lichtmans settings, just like driftwood.
